We offer a number of postgraduate programmes across the performing arts. We also offer part-time, blended learning programmes such as a Masters of Education in Learning and Teaching and a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching/Learning Support. The MEd is a popular course for teaching artists and teachers and from across all education sectors, who want to develop their skills further as part of their professional learning.
If you are looking for doctoral study, you can apply to join the thriving Research department at RCS and undertake a PhD, MPhil or Doctor of Performing Arts programme. The Research Excellence Framework (2014) showed that more than two thirds of RCS research was either world-leading or internationally excellent, and suggested our research in music and drama has the strongest impact of Scottish work in this field. Research degrees at the Royal Conservatoire are validated and awarded by the University of St Andrews, meaning Research students enjoy access to the facilities of both distinguished institutions.
